Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating works by pumping a controlled flow of warm water from any heat source through plastic tubing embedded in the floor. Because the emitting area is large, sufficient warmth is provided even on a cold winter day with no need for supplementary heating.


Heat from a radiator travels up and around the walls and ceiling of a room first, losing much of its useful heat in the process….

…while the heat from underfloor heating is evenly distributed from the surface of the floor throughout the whole living space.

Underfloor heating can be used with any heat source including standard gas and oil boilers, range cookers and renewable technologies such as ground and air source heat pumps.

Hot water delivered to the underfloor heating manifold from the heat source is blended until the correct temperature is reached. In most boiler-fed systems this will be between 40° and 55° but in a heat pump system can be as low as 30°, which can dramatically increase the efficiency of the heat pump.
